Preparing for the worst : are Russian and NATO military exercises making war in Europe more likely? by Thomas Frear( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both NATO and Russia are keen to emphasise that their exercises are defensive in nature. This may well be true. Nevertheless, the worsening political relationship between NATO and Russia now appears to be bringing with it an action-reaction cycle in terms of military exercises. In our view, the implementation of four recommendations could help to defuse or at least minimise the tensions connected with the increased frequency and scale of the military exercises now taking place

Dangerous brinkmanship : close military encounters between Russia and the West in 2014 by Thomas Frear( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the Russian annexation of Crimea, the intensity and gravity of incidents involving Russian and Western militaries and security agencies has visibly increased. This ELN Policy Brief provides details of almost 40 specific incidents that have occurred over the last eight months. These events add up to a highly disturbing picture of violations of national airspace, emergency scrambles, narrowly avoided mid-air collisions, close encounters at sea, simulated attack runs and other dangerous actions happening on a regular basis over a very wide geographical area. Apart from routine or near-routine encounters, the Brief identifies 11 serious incidents of a more aggressive or unusually provocative nature, bringing a higher level risk of escalation. These include harassment of reconnaissance planes, close overflights over warships, and Russian 'mock bombing raid' missions. It also singles out 3 high risk incidents which in our view carried a high probability of causing casualties or a direct military confrontation: a narrowly avoided collision between a civilian airliner and Russian surveillance plane, abduction of an Estonian intelligence officer, and a large-scale Swedish 'submarine hunt'. Even though direct military confrontation has been avoided so far, the mix of more aggressive Russian posturing and the readiness of Western forces to show resolve increases the risk of unintended escalation and the danger of losing control over events

The Baltic States, NATO and non-strategic nuclear weapons in Europe by Shatabhisha Shetty( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A debate within NATO about the future of US non-strategic nuclear weapons stationed in Europe has been revived over the past few years after a lengthy period in which the issue lay dormant. Renewed arguments in favor of removing the weapons have gained traction in some NATO capitals, partly in response to President Obama's 2009 speech in Prague and calls to reduce the world's growing nuclear dangers. However, opposition to any change has also been strong. This paper focuses on the Baltic States. Due to their geostrategic location, the perspectives of the three Baltic States have a particular resonance. For them, NATO's primary purpose is collective defence through the Article V commitment and the maintenance of the necessary capabilities for deterrence and defense. Their priority and principal focus, therefore, is on ensuring the credibility of these capabilities, the transatlantic link and the US nuclear deterrent. The Baltic States are wary of any proposals for change which could, in their view, weaken the credibility of the commitment to collective defense, and are skeptical about those proposals that involve Russian reciprocity. Changes are not excluded, but can be considered only after the question 'will we be more secure?' is answered
Poland, NATO and non-strategic nuclear weapons in Europe by Andrew Somerville( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A debate within NATO about the future of non-strategic nuclear weapons stationed in Europe has been revived over the past few years. For a long period, the issue lay dormant, but since 2009 political changes have driven a vigorous debate. This paper, the first in a series examining the position of a key group of NATO member states in the debate, focuses on Poland. The series begins with Poland because it could have a pivotal role to play, and has a position that is complex and too often caricatured. Poland has good reasons both to be apprehensive about changes in NATO nuclear posture and to seek to bring about that change. As the search continues for a NATO compromise, therefore, it could come to play a bargaining role among differing groups within the Alliance and could either help to build a consensus for incremental change or be increasingly influential in ensuring that no change occurs
